Patrick Faber on Leaked Letter
In a recently leaked letter addressed to UDP Chairman Michael Peyrefitte, Collet Area Representative Patrick Faber says that he is being pressured by party leader Moses “Shyne” Barrow to back him as party leader in the upcoming general Elections. According to the letter, Barrow requested Faber’s support for this proposal at the National Party Council meeting scheduled for this Saturday and offered to accept the resignation of Ian Jones and reinstate Faber as standard bearer for Collet in return. Faber notes that he declined this offer, expressing his preference for a democratic process that adheres to the Party’s Constitution. We asked Faber about it today.
Patrick Faber, Area Representative, Collet Division: “It’s a very internal matter the letter that was sent to the chairman was again my expression which is allowed to me within the regulations of our party, within the constitution of our party that a member can explain how he feels so that matter is not a matter that I will speak on outside of the fora that is afforded me within the structures of the party. The NPC there’s a certain level of autonomy that is given to the NPC given that it is the second highest body the only body that could trump any decision made by the NPC would be the national convention and so whatever happened in that meeting it was the body that was authorized to make such decisions that met and made those decisions so we cannot have any complaints.”
